Michelman to showcase two new water-based primers at Dscoop EMEA 6

Michelman will exhibit its two new DigiPrime digital press primers at Dscoop EMEA 6 event, which is due to be held in Lyon, France.

At the event, which is scheduled to take place from 7 June to 9 June 2017, the company will introduce its DigiPrime 6611 and DigiPrime 4462 primers suitable for use on paper and synthetics.

The water-based primers are formulated for use with HP Indigo presses. DigiPrime 6611, which can be applied near-line, manufactures enhanced ink adhesion on flexible packaging substrates such as synthetics and other types of film.

Michelman said DigiPrime 6611 demonstrates better lamination bond strength for flexible packaging applications and plays a key role in the absence of corona or when there is limited drying capacity.

DigiPrime 4462 is claimed to produce better ink adhesion and can be used on several substrates printed on HP Indigo digital presses.

It works well on applications like labeling on personal care and consumer products that expose to water and moisture. DigiPrime 4462 can also be used for food contact applications.

Apart from these primers, the company will also be showcasing in-line primers for use on HP Indigo 20000, 30000 and 6000 digital presses.

DigiPrime 050 can be used in the priming and unwinding unit (PUW) of the HP Indigo 20000. It improves adhesive bond strength between film layers, and can be used in typical adhesive laminated structures.

DigiPrime 060 for the HP Indigo 30000 enhances ink adhesion on the substrate. It will not interfere with converting operations such as erection of the carton, gluing, date coding and bar coding.

DigiPrime 680 is used inline on the HP Indigo WS6000 series of digital presses for flexible packaging printing applications. It enhances ink receptivity on most types of film, and presents better lamination bond strength. 

Michem In-Line Primer 030 can be used with the HP Indigo WS6000 series of presses. It improves the surface of a range of paper and filmic label stocks, including textured papers and transparent label stock.
